Old but gold! This incredible recipe has always been a part of our family. My grandma used to make this pretty much every time we went to her house. It is a very simple recipe that I think all of you can pull off. I learned to make this when I was just twelve years old. Now, that I have a family myself, I always make this for my kids. I love how their faces light up when they smell this freshly baked Pie coming out of the oven. Give this one a try today and I am certain that you will crave this all the time. This is perfect with orange or lemon juice!
4 cups of water
4 cups raisins
1 cup light brown sugar
5 tablespoons cornstarch
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoon lemon juice
3 tablespoons butter (not margarine)
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 9-inch deep-dish pie shells
HOW TO MAKE OLD FASHIONED RAISIN PIE
Step 1: In a medium pot, combine the raisins and water. Bring the water to a boil and cook for 5 minutes.
Step 2: In a bowl, mix the brown sugar, cornstarch, cinnamon, and salt. And gradually stir the mixture into the hot raisins.
Step 3: Cook and constantly stir until the syrup is thickened. Then, remove from the heat and stir in the lemon juice, butter, and vanilla. And let the mixture cool for a bit.
Step 4: Carefully pour the raisin filling into one of the pie shells and remove the pie crust from the other shell. Place it on top of the filling and pinch the edges to seal.
Step 5: Make a couple of slits using a knife at the top of the pie.
Step 6: Place inside the oven and bake at 425 degrees for 30 to 35 minutes.
Step 7: Remove from the oven and let it sit on a wire rack to cool.
Step 8: Serve and enjoy!
